• I wanted to say thank you, for the help and support you gave me all the way. Thank you for being there for me when I needed someone to talk to. Thank you for all the counselling, thank you for everything.

  • God sent you to us at the right time, when my family and I were desperate and hopeless, without knowing what to do. Thanks to your help and support, my son came back home safe to our family. You won big zchut by doing it.


  • I was impressed to see Mr Benny Fisher’s activity on the medicine area. His knowledge is very large, and his devotion and sense of responsability are limitless.

About Us

מייסד האגודה - הרב בנימין פישר

Rabbi Benjamin Fisher, Founder & Director – Guided by the vision of Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, ztl, Rabbi Benjamin Fisher founded Magen Lacholeh in 1991. At the young age of 18, Rabbi Fisher, visited a seriously ill friend in the hospital and spent a few months at his bedside. While assisting his friend, Rabbi Fisher developed an excellent rapport with the staff.

As Rabbi Fisher’s understanding of medicine increased, so did the number of families who contacted him for assistance. At the end of 1991, Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, ztl, approached Rabbi Fisher and asked him to establish a formal organization to help families in need of medical assistance.

Today Rabbi Fisher is fulfilling Rabbi Auerbach’s directive, helping thousands of people in Israel and all around the world gain access to the best medical care available.
